Hey gang, guess what? Our flies may not be our own or nearby hatchings. The flies we call stable flies have been netted as high as 5 mi, cruising along with the winds up there and can travel from California to mid way across the US in a matter of hours. Pretty hard to control that. After waging war on the worst all that works is a dark, dark shelter during the day as the biters prefer daylight. The horses go out toward dark and come in before 9 am when the bugs are at their worst.
That's very true, but luckily for me the lady across the way feeds DE, has her manure picked up and hauled off and has a groundskeeper scoop pastures and clean stalls daily. The farmer next door is pretty good with his beef cattle as well, and they are grass not grain- which I find helps somehow with flies.
It takes a community is what I'm saying, but if I'm not doing my part why should I expect them too? Posted via Mobile Device
